Notes

Earthwork remains of a post-medieval farmstead consisting of an enclosure 101m east to west by 37m north to south and a latter extension to the west 84m by 46m. The walls of the enclosure are 1.5m wide and 0.7m high. Within the original eastern part of the enclosure are the remains of four rectangular buildings of turf walls standing to a maximum height of 1m. Three of the buildings are oriented east west, the fourth is situated to the north of the others and is oriented north south. Within the western extension is a single building oriented east west. The farmstead is situated within the area known to be the the medieval shieling of the tenants of Brampton and it is thought that the farmstead developed from the earlier shielings in this area. Scheduled.
